Blood Oranges are as intimidating as your elderly neighbor’s tea cup poodle. This citrus is named for its fruit with crimson-colored flesh, which is delicious, not malicious. For what it’s worth, people who do not typically like the acidity of citrus fruit might actually enjoy eating blood oranges, which have 10 percent less acid content than other citrus fruits. For gardeners who would rather not explain this phenomenon to non-gardeners, we welcome you to the dark side with open arms. Blood Orange trees will bloom in the early spring, and like most citrus, depend on excellent establishment and care within the first year to produce fruit. The most ideal spot to plant a Blood Orange tree is in a sunny, dry spot reminiscent of its Southern Mediterranean origin.

Weather Holds
Orders placed in colder climate zones during the winter months will automatically be placed on hold until Spring or when temperatures in your area are above freezing on the expected date of delivery.  

Heat Packs
Heat packs can be purchased separately to avoid cold weather delays.
If you live in a colder climate and do not want to wait until Spring to get your new plants, we recommend adding a heat pack to your order. Your plants will ship as scheduled and arrive safely, with no risk of freezing on the way to your front door.
